FAQ

About Placing Orders

My order didn’t go through. Why did I get charged?
If your order doesn’t go through, your bank may still “authorize” the amount of the transaction. In these circumstances you have NOT been charged, though the authorized amount may appear on your online card statement as “pending”. This means that your bank will “hold” the amount of the transaction temporarily. If you do not see “pending” or “authorized” and are concerned that you have been charged for an incomplete transaction, please contact your card issuer.

Unfortunately, we have no control over how credit card issuers process pending/failed transactions. If we can provide supporting information for an inquiry you wish to make to your credit card issuer, please email us at: sonnyangel_info@sonnyangelusa.com
I placed an order, but I haven't received an automated reply.
If you do not get an email from us within 5 minutes after order, you may have entered an incorrect email address or not completed your order. Please contact us via the contact form.

To Apple Pay customers: Please note that when placing an order using Apple Pay, a separate account will automatically be created under the email address, billing and shipping information associated with your Apple Pay account. We are unable to merge separate accounts, so please keep this in mind when using Apple Pay.
I want to add, change or cancel my order.
Orders can be cancelled by the customer on the order status page within 3 hours of being placed. To cancel after this time period, please reach out to us via the contact us form and include your order number. We try to process and ship orders as quickly as possible, so we may not be able to accommodate your request if your order has already been processed. We are unable to change or cancel orders that have already been shipped.
Why can't I order over $500?
In order to curb reselling and prevent bulk purchasing, we have a total order limit of $500. If your total cart amount is more than $500, you will see a pop up and will be prevented from moving to checkout. We appreciate your compliance in helping to discourage unauthorized reselling!
What are the order limits?
Order limits are listed on each product and are dependent on inventory levels and item popularity. Customers are allowed to order the maximum limit every 30 days. Order limits are subject to change without notice.
I don't see my Sonny Angel points.
Please ensure you are using the Sonny Angel USA app, not the Japanese version of the app. Points are awarded once per month for eligible orders and products. If you have still not received points after 30 days from your order, please reach out. Please see our Points FAQ for more information.
Why is my birthday coupon not working?
The birthday coupon is available to customers who have signed up for a Sonny Angel account and have registered their birthday. Please make sure you are logged into your account and you have filled out the Birthday Registration Form prior to ordering.
